T-Mobile G2 Spotted In The Wild

Today some shots of the T-Mobile G1 predecessor the G2 have been leaked we don’t have much on the specs of T-Mobiles next big smartphone other than it appears to be an americanized version of the upcoming HTC Vision it looks like you can expect a 3.7 inch display and a sliding QWERTY keyboard but we don’t have any specifics on its internals yet, As always we’ll keep you posted.

The Original Verizon Droid Smartphone Getting Android 2.2 Over The Air Update This Week, Missing Features.

This is the week that the original Droid will be getting the Android 2.2 update, but it looks like that update won’t be bringing two of the most oft-requested features: tethering and a mobile hotspot. Why’s that? While tethering seems to be simply due to a lack of an app that “isn’t part of this update,” the mobile hotspot issue is a bit more curious — Verizon spokesperson Brenda Raney says that the Droid “doesn’t have [the] hardware to support a mobile hotspot.” No further explanation than that, but we have a sneaking suspicion that Motorola and Verizon aren’t passing over the feature because of a lack of hardware, but because of too much hardware — namely, the Droid 2 and Droid X.

Droid X VS Droid 2 A Brief Overview And Spec Comparison [Video]

Summary: The Droid X and the Droid 2 are identical in hardware specifications such as CPU / Memory / GPU (Graphics) however the Droid 2 has a slide out keyboard which the Droid X does not have and the Droid X has an 8MP camera VS’s the Droid 2’s 5MP camera also the Droid X is 0.6 inches larger than the Droid 2 yet it has the same screen resolution, My choice would certainly be for the Droid 2 but the Droid X will certain appeal to some people over the Droid 2.
